Rookies Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Ron Baker combined for 26 points in a loss to the Hawks.
Although they didn’t blow anyone out of the water with their statistics, they brought a new fire and energy to the Knicks that was pretty entertaining to watch. Mindaugas Kuzminskas scored 14 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in his first NBA start. He also received a nice battle scar on his right cheek for all his troubles. Ron Baker finished with 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers. Jeff Hornacek is looking to get funky with lineups so “Ron Burgundy” and Kuzminskas could get some more playing time. As of now they’re only worth a look in deeper leagues.
